Poverty in America in 2017

A couple weeks ago I was asked to shoot an event for PAWS in San Diego which provides care and assistance for animals owned by the homeless or those in difficult financial situations. They were provide several services at the recent Stand Down for the Homeless to assist veterans and such with a variety of services including health care, counselling, job search, finding shelters etc...PAWS was providing a pet day care, and scheduling wellness check with volunteer vets for Saturday and Sunday to provide flea and tick control etc... as pets were not allowed inside the event. We cared for cats, dogs and even pigeons. My job was to capture clients, volunteers animals in general for future marketing purposes and fund raising efforts by PAWS and the San Diego Humane Society.

It was a very humbling and moving event as my heart went out to these families, I saw a young boy with a 3 month old pit bull puppy. A real sweet pup with a poorly healed broken paw. The pup hobbled around unable to use 1 paw, but was very happy. The boy so very much loved his dog. They were getting a wellness check. I know fixing the paw (if it is indeed fixable) would be something way out of his family's price range to fix...even amputating the paw would be beyond what they can afford. I wanted to cry. Anyhow keeping this in mind I was thinking of Dorthea Lange and her shots during the dustbowl. That famous shot



I saw this family signing up to vet care. While mom was filling out the paper work the dad picked up his second daughter. I saw the shot and moved around to get this.



Let me know what you all think. One thing I will say is Dorthea's shot was posed. Mine was not

Re: Poverty in America in 2017

I've not posted here in awhile but I agree with Dixie Girl, that is a wonderful, worthwhile charity you're involved in.

And the 2 B & W shots are perfect, they really portray the sad life these folks have been burden with, yet they are still together as a family. Great job Clark !
